Internet of Things and Industrial Internet Messaging Technologies Comparison Whitepaper

| March 1, 2016

The most important messaging technologies proposed as the foundation of the next generation of Internet of Things (IoT) and more specifically the Industrial Internet applications are reviewed in this document. An understanding of both the architecture and the message/data sharing requirements of each target system is an important pre-requisite for choosing the most appropriate messaging solution. AMQP and JMS have been designed to address applications requiring fast and reliable business transactions. JMS is focused on Java-centric systems although there are a number of vendors who have developed proprietary C and C++ JMS API mappings that can be used with a JMS broker. As an API standard, JMS cannot guarantee interoperability between producers and consumers using different JMS implementations.

Weathermatic

Weathermatic is a leading provider of water-conserving technology and services. Based in Garland, TX, Weathermatic has been serving landscape professionals for more than sixty-five years and has a full line of controllers, weather stations, flow sensors, valves, rotors, sprays and nozzles. Weathermatic products have been installed in over 80 countries and on high profile properties like the U.S. Capitol Building, Buckingham Palace and the College Football Hall of Fame. In addition to our cloud-connected Smart Irrigation Control technology, Weathermatic offers water-saving Sustainability Services for Commercial Properties that typically save 20-70% in landscape water. With water rates rising as much 8% per year and most properties overwatering by 50% (according to the EPA), water waste is becoming very costly for property owners. Many properties with our Sustainability Services are finding a payback of as little as 18 months while continuing to maintain very healthy landscapes.

Artificial Intelligence Applications: Is Your Business Implementing AI Smartly?

Article | March 12, 2020

The book Design, Launch, and Scale IoT Services classifies the components of IoT services into technical modules. One of the most important of these is Artificial Intelligence (AI). This article is intended to supplement the book by providing insight into AI and its applications for IoT. After many years in the wilderness, AI is back on the hype curve and will change the world again. Or, will it? AI has always been interesting, but what has changed to justify the current hype? There are several contributing factors. The volumes of data that will be produced by many IoT services suggest that this data cannot be managed by humans with traditional analytics tools. Therefore, AI can offer opportunities for IoT services to extract maximum value from the data. IoT cloud platforms are now offering AI services via APIs and application development tools, making AI more accessible for many IoT services. Now, AI can be incorporated without requiring extensive development or excessive costs.

Scalable Software with Devops for Industrial IoT

Article | March 12, 2020

Scaling Industrial IoT (IIoT) solutions requires a DevOps organization that can manage increased software and hardware complexity in terms of capability, capacity and footprint. DevOps is derived from Development and Operations and is one of the buzz words for ICT companies. Often it is the amalgamation of Software Developers from R&D and senior engineers from Operations into a new organization. Startups are faced with the challenge of how to quickly create a functioning DevOps organization that can scale with rapid growth. In this article, we will deal with the keys for success to scale software solutions with using an example of an Industrial IoT solution. We will look at how DevOps should function and discuss the important principles for software development, tools and operations.

Automotive Sales: Improving the Customer Experience Using IoT

Article | March 12, 2020

Customer touchpoints throughout the automotive sales cycle are prime candidates for IoT innovation. Across the board, the data derived from these IoT applications have the capability to provide insights and actionable outcomes which can significantly improve the customer experience. When a customer arrives at a dealership, it may be difficult for the dealer to know if they have what the customer is looking for. For instance, a customer might be coming in to see a particular vehicle, test-drive a car they’ve already seen, or to casually browse their options. Without any data behavior on the customer beforehand, sales personnel or the dealership may not be properly equipped to handle the customer’s request. Perhaps a requested car is no longer on the main show floor for immediate display but instead buried somewhere in a backlot. Maybe another car that was requested for a test drive may not yet be properly serviced for operation. These are only a few of the challenges associated with automotive sales that IoT is capable of helping to improve.

AI + IoT = Automating and Analyzing Data Collection

Article | March 12, 2020

IoT is huge, but AI has the potential to supercharge the technology even more. Gartner predicts that this year 80 percent of all enterprise IoT projects will include AI. One area where many have been critical of IoT is a lack of good security. When coupled with AI, that could be improved, but some worry that AI can also be used as a tool to defeat IoT security. Dean Chester, cybersecurity author, wrote that “AI can be used for IoT security, or it can be used against it.”Melvin Greer, Chief Data Scientist, Intel Americas , said that “AI and IoT are no longer in separate swim lanes. AI closes the loop in an IoT environment where IoT devices gather or create data, and AI helps automate important choices and actions based on that data. Today, most organizations using IoT are only at the first ‘visibility’ phase where they can start to see what’s going on through IoT assets. But they’re moving toward the reliability, efficiency and production phases, which are more sophisticated and require stronger AI capabilities.
